Edwin who leaves a fine wife Sue, who has lost her best friend, grew into a real English gentleman, hard working, clever, popular, with all the qualities mentioned in the Rudyard Kipling poem ‘If’ and that despite moving to Canada where he achieved most of his aims in his business life.
I first met Edwin as far back as 1967 during my Bexhill Sailing Club years including when I lived at beautiful Rye.
Over the years we kept in touch steadily becoming better and better friends.
It was my privilege and honour to be one of those advising and comforting him during a grim divorce he truly did not deserve.
I was further fortunate to be able to host him at Gaillac, and his lovely new wife Sue when they last visited France, beautiful shared companionship.
I keep a framed copy of this photo in my home.
